Top Ten Failed Climate Change Predictions

It wasn't just about "global warming". There were other climate apocalypse theories too:
5. "By 1985, air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half." Life magazine, January 1970.
...
6. "If present trends continue, the world will be ... eleven degrees colder by the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age." Kenneth E.F. Watt, in "Earth Day," 1970. Remember before we were warned about global warming, we were told that the Earth was facing an Ice age.
And, of course, back then, the science too, had been settled, and, in spite of a handful of "deniers", the scientists had "solid experimental and historical evidence to support each of the following predictions".

Want to address the financial crisis, the run-away deficits and the consequences of the recent snow storm all at once? Abolish taxpayers' funding to every single "climate change" project and send all those "experts" to shovel snow.

Very interesting. I wonder why thy environmentalists never talk about this? I think I know why.
